What is religion

Belief followance and inheritance

When we say religion is through inheritence giving more and more emphasis to biological birth and increasing numbers as way to propagate religion as part of there belief system.

Do SIKHs also believe inheritence the same way as other beliefs.

Was this initiation of SIKHISM or we have merged in stream.

What inheritence is meant.

Please share thought.

Do many sikhs believe that they are such by birth? Yes, it must be admitted.
Does the Guru?

TRUTH disappeared from life. Education was not important. Rituals shown dominance. Hard was TRUTH bearance on MIND.

To shed was routine of MIND not awareness

There IS no religion

Guru Nanak taught that there is No Hindu, No Muslim.. Only One.

Therefore, there is no religion, Only One/ God/ Truth

But there is Hinduism Muslim Christianity and Sikhism. all ways.

That is what is there and where is what it should be.

Why can't what it should be.

Serve for what it should be.

That's Devotion.

I don’t understand this
There is deletion of thought what was required as admittance and deletion from MIND. Inheritence is religion is through spritual Education and Practice.


Not by BIRTH way we think it is inherited.

Seekers Philosphy.

No.. there’s only Truth. Taught by many teachers throughout the ages, but there’s only One.

Sat Sri Akaal

Sikh inheritence is education and followance of Gurusbani.
Any race caste creed language origin connected with philosphy is seeker and can become Gursikh and Khalsa.

But once we dont follow education and practice even though by taking birth in sikh family the spirit is lacking or missing.

Sat Sri Akaal,

If one can not eat half cooked food, how a discourse can be through half awared person. Where is check on ethics of professing. If the discipline of professing is not there, what disciple have.

Reheat Maryada for professing and leadership if it is there and implemented. Leader will be a Learned irrespective of voter.

For religious leadership we have made Maryada for voters but not for leaders.

Again, brother. Your English is very bad. You need to write your posts in Simple English so people can understand. Don’t use big words until you have become good at writing in simple English

For example, say something like:

Today I woke up and ate breakfast...

Instead of writing : today I awoke and feasted on the delicacies that my breakfast comprised of.

You understand? Write small words, not big words so people can understand you.

Sat Sri Akaal,

SISTER,

If I write.like I can not use "I" while writting Gurus Bani. Else focus comes to me, as I am getting half cooked food in the morning and with spoiled mood on breakfast, written something. Though my wife serves it well cooked.

Half cooked food is used as a metaphor, for incomplete knowledge, before one starts as preaching.

It's simple or complex but by default.

Absolutely agree. Guru Nanak worked hard to deliver this message but we look for the lowest common denominator - in this case pretentious display showing that we believe in Guru's teachings. This stems from idol worship as it means we do not have to awaken our inner self - that needs work.
We pray, in fact we involve others to do it for us, we pay them, this is contracting out our gift which as Guru says is within us.
If by praying we expect further favours from the Lord - we have lost the plot.
When we are born we get, without asking, brain, hands, feet and all that we have to be thankful for and every day we get up is new journey if only we realise.

True. Gratitude and contentment is rare for sure.

Yeh, a lot of people focus on the external show which is sad..but society is like that, fake smiles, focusing only on within whilst neglecting inner work.

I’m by no means perfect and guilty of this too.

Lol, Brother

All I am saying is try and use simple English :)

That way people can understand you instead of using big words used in the wrong context with grammatical errors. It’s not a personal attack, I have taught English before so I’m just offering you an alternative. People do not understand your posts.
